Artisan Market

Starting from Sunday 29th April, the artisan market in Brighouse will run for the first time this Spring with lots of stalls of local foods and hand-crafted exhibits, all made by businesses in our own towns in Yorkshire.

The market is run by the Brighouse Business Initiative (BBI) a group of volunteers from the town’s businesses and retailers, who dedicate their time to organise the events every year.  The aim Is to expand local businesses and bring in new producers in the hope to expand the number of visitors and local attractions in the town. 

The first market event was originally held in spring 2010 with just 25 stalls, which over the years have doubled to over 50 stalls, full of home produced foods and crafts. In 2012, they won the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) award for best speciality market in the UK. The hope is that in 2019 they can expand their markets to run every month.

So, if you’re ready for something different to start the Spring off, the Artisan market is a great way to spend the day. If you’re a food fan, the market offers locally made cheeses, plus bread and meat from local bakers and farmers. You can also explore a day of culture with street food from Pakistan, Mongolia and more. Plus, if you’re still peckish later on there are sweets, cakes and jams with all locally sourced fruit.

The market will also offer a range of craft stalls with homemade jewellery, accessories and ceramics. This is all accompanied by entertainment such as brass bands, a fair ground and donkey rides for the little ones. It’s a fun day out that is not to be missed this Spring, so put it in your diaries and bring the whole family for a jam-packed day.
